Breitling’s iconic pilot’s chronograph – in a poignant tribute to the “Queen of the Skies.” In 1952, Willy Breitling developed a wrist-worn chronograph with a circular slide rule that would allow pilots to perform all necessary flight calculations. As the defacto pilot’s watch throughout the glory days of civil aviation, the Navitimer was worn by airline captains and aircraft enthusiasts. The Boeing 747 made its maiden voyage in 1969, and went on to revolutionize civil aviation, putting long-haul flights within reach of a new generation of air travelers and connecting the world like never before. As Boeing delivers its last 747, Breitling celebrates two aviation icons with a special-edition Navitimer, limited to 747 pieces. The Navitimer Boeing 747’s colors echo the palette found on the original aircraft, captured in the cream dial with black subdials, and red inner slide-rule scale with blue accents. It is engraved with “One of 747” and the phrase “The Original Jumbo Jet”—providing a poignant tribute to an aircraft that opened the skies and changed the way we travel.
